Pack of six Hurricane MkIIB's flown by 151 Wing RAF during their excurtion to Murmansk in late 1941.















Also included is one skin with RAF markings and one with tail flash only.

Made with Friendly Flyers awesome template with Shooters mech layer, other stuff by me.

Many thanks go to Tim Elkington, who flew GO-31 in Murmansk/Archangel for advice given regarding markings/scheme/weathering etc and to MysticPuma for being the link between us and offering support.

**As you can see by the screen shots these Hurricanes were the tropicalised versions but will fit the standard MkIIB.
For those who wish to use the Trop filter I have added the required folder, just drop it into the 'MODS' folder in your main IL2 root folder and it should show in game.
To disable it just put a '-' infront of it**

Uploaded into the Hurricane MkIIBmod skin section as there isn't one for the MkIIB

Excellent work!

However the second letter of each pair was also painted in Russia and should match the colour of the number paint. All 81 Sqn a/c started with F and 134 with G and the second letter was the letter that had been on the fuselage where the number was painted over. The original second letter of the sqn code thereby vanished.

My explanation probably sucks but I hope you see what I mean. It explains why all the Sqn a/c have F? or G? codes.

Ian,
Thx for the come-back, however, from the photo's MP sent to me (from Mr.Elkington) I think I have them pretty right.







Those coded 'FK' had a Russian Style 'K' as far as I can tell, but those might be for the future.
